Sarah forwarded me an e-mail yesterday at 9:00 AM from a co-worker offering free tickets to Lilith Fair last night. “Sure, why not?” I thought and responded. So, we made plans to leave work early to go. It was a good show. And, in keeping with our vow to never repeat “the Shakira mistake” (she played a free concert in Mexico City’s Zócalo, which our hotel faced, later in the same day we returned to the U.S.) we stayed until the end and were rewarded with an encore of all the artists performing the Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen classic “Because the Night.”

Friends from Champaign-Urbana, Matt and Robert (aka Common Loon), are on tour this spring and stopped by DC a little over a week ago. Finally got the pictures out of the camera—erm, off the card—last night. (Nikon D40 : ISO1600 : 50 mm : f/1.8 : 1/15)
I’m not entirely thrilled about the Apple/iTunes system. But, I have workarounds and it’s a convenient way to get music legally. Recently, it seems that they are finally catching up with some really good electronic music, which is good news!
